Joel Barlow, 1804

In the autumn of 1804, Joel Barlow was fifty years old and on his way to America for the first time in sixteen years.

“We long very much to get back to our country which I assure you has never ceased to concentrate all our best affections, You must not imagine that we have the most distant idea of staying in this country or of ever setting our foot again in the land of the Corsican. I have disposed of the property I had there, and have quitted with great joy a nation that had long become insupportable to me, from the follies of the many and the rogueries of the few.”

Mass Murder and Public Slavery

In Man versus the State, Herbert Spencer concluded that “all socialism involves slavery” ([1884] 1992, 2.30). Thirty-three years later, with Vladimir Lenin’s coup d’état in October 1917, Russia opened the most deadly experiment in human history, which resulted in the establishment of a regime of total public slavery.

The Coup of 18 Brumaire brought General Napoleon Bonaparte to power as First Consul of France and in the view of most historians ended the French Revolution. This bloodless coup d’état overthrew the Directory, replacing it with the French Consulate. This occurred on 9 November 1799, which was 18 Brumaire, Year VIII under the short-lived French Republican calendar system.

The Fall of the Bastille on July 14, 1789

Barlow was in Paris during the fall of the Bastille on July 14, 1789. He was a friend of Thomas Paine and other Revolutionary sympathizers, English and American. He wrote his major tract ‘Advice to the Privileged Orders’ and his verse-satire ‘The Conspiracy of Kings’ in London, where he and Ruth had gone to avoid the Jacobin disorders. The ‘Advice’ so offended the British government that it banned the book and tried to arrest Barlow, who fled into hiding in Paris. His ‘Letter to the National Convention of France,’ a proposal for a new French constitution, so impressed the Assembly delegates that in 1792, they made him an honorary citizen of the new Republic, an honour he shared with Washington, Hamilton, Madison, and Paine. In the final throes of the Terror, when Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette were executed in 1793, Barlow was in southeast France helping organize the Savoy, newly captured from Italy, as a political division of the new Republic.

‘The Columbiad’, published in Philadelphia in 1807

Fluent in French, sympathetic to the Republic, and successful in business, the Barlows were popular with the reformers and intelligentsia, as well as such scientific innovators as the balloonist Montgolfier. They were also close to Robert Fulton, who arrived in France in 1797, and worked for some years on prototypes of his steamboat, torpedo boat, and other engineering projects. Fulton later did the illustrations for a large, handsome second version of Barlow’s epic, heavily revised and retitled ‘The Columbiad’, published in Philadelphia in 1807.

Guadeloupean Resistance to Slavery Regime – French Colonies

From the ABSTRACT: – “[…] the Guadeloupean resistance to Napoleon’s attempt to reimpose a slavery regime in the French colonies.

“[…] one of landmark importance in the Caribbean tradition of rebellion and self-liberation […]”

– the extended arc of liberatory acts –

“[…] inscribed in a variety of locations but always espousing the same goal – that mark the identitarian activities of Caribbean slaves almost from the inception of the colonial moment to the act of emancipation. In a large sense, the resistance to Napoleon’s invading forces, although ultimately doomed to failure in Guadeloupe, emerged from and was shaped by the specificities of social, economic, and political structures that transformed Guadeloupe during this critical period, and was driven by principles of liberation and self-emancipation emerging from the path adopted by Guadeloupe’s governor, Victor Hugues, and the various communities over which he presided. ”
